When I think of beautiful makeup, Clarins always comes to mine and the Garden Escape Collection for Spring is another example of that. This collection focuses on hydrating lip balms, nourishing lip oils, a gorgeous 6-Colour eye palette, as well as new shades of Joli Rouge Sheer lipsticks, Blush Prodige and Crayon Khôl eye pencil.
The Clarins Garden Escape Collection for Spring includes:
Limited-Edition Garden Escape 6-Colour Eye Palette ($45)
Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Color in 08 – Sweet Rose ($32)
Crayon Khôl in 09 – Intense Green ($25)
Instant Light Lip Balm Perfector ($23) in six new shades: 01 – Rose, 02 – Coral, 03 – My Pink, 04 – Orange, 05 – Red and 06 – Rosewood.
Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil ($23) in Honey or Raspberry
Joli Rouge Perfect Shine Sheer Lipstick ($27) in 22 – Coral Dahlia or 23 – Rose Petal
I love that this collection has so many lip options in it. In the spring and summer, I tend to opt for lighter lip formulas that offer hydration and sheer color. That is what this collection is all about. I love the new Instant Light Lip Balm Perfectors. They give a sheer, but pigmented wash of color with the feel of a lip balm. Rose is my favorite shade but the “My Pink” is interesting in that it develops into your own unique lip shade.
The Instant Light Lip Comfort Oils were also a nice discovery. My lips have been so dry; that applying this light oil has been comforting. The applicator is a cushiony, curved doe foot that deposits just the right amount of oil on your lips. The oil is light, non-sticky and sheer. I liked the Raspberry best; you hardly know it’s there, but boy, does it feel good.
I think my favorite product of the ones that I tried is the Blush Prodige Illuminating Cheek Color. This is a beautiful blush! In addition to cheek color, there is also a highlight color, so you can blush and highlight. This new shade, Sweet Rose, is universally flattering, has great pigmentation and is easy to wear. One of the best blushes I’ve tried in a long time!
